Is This Funny or Creepy?



Text  



I recently saw this Geico commerical, and I’m still uneasy about it. Geico ads are normally pretty silly, but this one goes a little too far. I know casting parents as goofballs rather than authority figures is commonplace today. But, does anyone think it’s funny to show parents eating their daughter’s pet goldfish as a way to save on their sushi-eating habit? Or am I missing something here?
